A big shout-out to my former colleague at ABC, Heather MacKenzie, who got a mention on the Rachel Maddow show last night. The reason for the mention, is interesting.
Former Virginia Governor, Bob McDonnell, has been indicted on federal charges for accepting gifts. It’s being reported by “The Wire” that McDonnell and his wife might have to sell off certain of those alleged “gifts,” if the former Gov is convicted. The possessions include an Oscar de la Renta sweater, an engraved Rolex watch, and a “Heather MacKenzie watercolor and frame.”
I’ve admired what Heather’s been doing with her watercolors and photography for several years. Hopefully, the mention by Maddow, will help attract a broader base of art lovers to her work. Click here, to check out Heather’s watercolors and photos. Here’s the original $1,200 watercolor that ended up with Bob McDonnell.
